I heard a term for SAHM today that 1 had not head before.  Household leader.

In what context?  Was it defined in some way?

Sounds like some sort of born-again thing.

I'm curious what context it was talked about in too.  I've heard moms at home call ourselves heads of the household b/c we keep tabs on all things at home, schedules and such but it's usually discussed in jest.  Lol.

Hmm, never heard that, what context?  I'm not sure why sah would be relevant to be a household leader either, depends on the context I guess.

It was in a conversation I overheard. Today was chemo day.  One of the other patients was working. He apparently works in marketing.  In a phone conversation he said that the demograpic he was trying to reach was the SAHM/household leader.  He then narrowed it down to moms that are home with a couple of toddlers.  So maybe a marketing term.

Makes me want to say "I am their leader. Which way did they go?"
